DIY Project: Emergency Survival Generator

This video shows you how to build of an extremely useful crank generator which I made from a modified dishwasher motor. Perfect for supplying power or charging batteries at a remote campsite or bunker. This unit can easily be modified to connect to a bicycle. Power output is either a 12V regulated supply (Up to 3 full amps), an unregulated output, as well as a provision for charging a 100F supercapacitor bank. This project can be certainly handy if you’re needing an off grid power supply. If you connected the large wheel to a bicycle, then you could easily charge a lead acid deep cycle battery. The purpose of the capacitor bank is to store the energy for short term use. Using a battery would be good for long term storage.
